A programmer is creating a simulation of a city where natural disasters can
randomly occur.
This incomplete code segment simulates a Godzilla disaster:
IF ()
{
cityHealth - cityHealth - 30
disasterMode - "godzilla"
}
The code should only give Godzilla a 2% chance of storming the city.
Which of these can replace  so that the code
works as intended?
Choose 1 answer:
A
RANDOM (1, 100) <= 2
B
RANDOM (1, 100) >= 98
RANDOM (1, 100) <= 98
C
RANDOM (1, 100) >= 2
D

Explanation
The problem requires determining the correct condition to use in an IF statement to simulate a 2% chance of a Godzilla disaster in a city simulation.
Step-by-step Instruction
Identify the correct condition: The RANDOM function should generate a number between 1 and 100, and the condition should be true for 2 out of those 100 numbers
Evaluate the options: Check which condition correctly represents a 2% chance
Time Complexity
The time complexity of evaluating a condition in an IF statement is O(1).
Space Complexity
The space complexity is O(1) as no additional space is required.


Let's evaluate the given options:

1. 
Option A: `RANDOM(1, 100) <= 2`

   - This condition will be true if the random number generated is 1 or 2.
   - Probability: 2100=0.02\frac{2}{100} = 0.02 or 2%.

2. 
Option B: `RANDOM(1, 100) >= 98`

   - This condition will be true if the random number generated is 98, 99, or 100.
   - Probability: 3100=0.03\frac{3}{100} = 0.03 or 3%.

3. 
Option C: `RANDOM(1, 100) <= 98`

   - This condition will be true if the random number generated is between 1 and 98.
   - Probability: 98100=0.98\frac{98}{100} = 0.98 or 98%.

4. 
Option D: `RANDOM(1, 100) >= 2`

   - This condition will be true if the random number generated is between 2 and 100.
   - Probability: 99100=0.99\frac{99}{100} = 0.99 or 99%.

The correct answer is 
Option A: `RANDOM(1, 100) <= 2`
.

Here is the code snippet with the correct condition:

python
Explanation
The code simulates a 2% chance of a Godzilla disaster by using the condition "RANDOM(1, 100) <= 2".
Time Complexity
The time complexity of the simulation is O(1) for each run.
Space Complexity
The space complexity is O(1) as no additional space is required.
